North Powys farm with sub-medieval history could be brought back into commercial use

A north Powys farm and farmhouse, described as “a survival of an exceptional sub-medieval house” complete with mountain land rising 450 metres, could be brought back into commercial use after being placed on the market.

Llwyn Onn at Penybontfawr, near Oswestry, is being sold by the Executors of the 124 acre property with the potential of being a high quality residential/amenity farm of interest to buyers with an interest in shooting and conservation.

It is being marketed and sold through Mid Wales and Shropshire estate agents Morris, Marshall and Poole with Norman Lloyd for offers in the region of £500,000.

“Llwyn Onn has some real potential for the right owner,” said Rob Hudson, a partner at MMP/NL. “The stone farmhouse has an attached granary with traditional stone ranges and will need renovation and refurbishment.

“However, the granary has the potential for conversion into residential accommodation, subject to planning consent.”

The farmhouse , granary and farm buildings are Grade II Star Listed. The designation of the listing states they are “a survival of an exceptional sub-medieval house related to the longhouse tradition with cruck framing and other original constructional features, together with the C19 late vernacular wing which has retained its character well.”

“It’s a rare opportunity to acquire a property with some real potential,” added Mr Hudson. “In addition to the farmhouse and outbuildings, the property has around 124 acres of south facing land with a combination of flat valley land with the River Tanat to the south, side land pasture, amenity woodland and mountain land rising to 450 metres’’, all with sporting rights included.

It is being marketed as a whole or in lots.
